We are thrilled to announce that our Winter Appeal not only met its £5,000 target but soared to an incredible £19,000, all thanks to the incredible help of our partners and supporters! Our Winter Appeal will be making a real difference in the lives of children in the UK who need it most. Let's dive into the heartwarming journey and celebrate the highlights of this extraordinary campaign.

Tripling Expectations with Tremendous Support

When we kicked off our Winter Appeal, we set an ambitious goal of £5,000. Little did we know that our fantastic supporters would go above and beyond, more than tripling our target with their remarkable fundraising efforts. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one who contributed to this outstanding achievement.

A Shoutout to Our Valued Partners

Our success wouldn't have been possible without the support of some incredible partners. A big shoutout to Boohoo, ACS Clothing, Boden, Johnsons Service Group, Kannegiesser, LK Bennett and Clean Linen for standing by us and helping make a significant impact. Your commitment to our cause has made a real difference in the lives of many children.

Special Highlights and Festive Fun

The festive spirit was alive and well, thanks to the efforts of UKFT and Johnsons Service Group, who hosted the fabulous 12 days of Christmas raffle. Special mention also goes to The FTCT team (pictured above left) who brought out their baking skills to sell delicious goodies in our office building. All proceeds, a whopping £324, were dedicated to our Winter Appeal, ensuring vital winter grants for children across the UK.

The star attractions of the day included Anna Norman’s mouth-watering sausage rolls, Janet’s heavenly apple pies, and Anna Pangbourne’s delectable banana cake.

Making a Real Impact in Children's Lives

The funds raised will be a beacon of hope for financially vulnerable children in the UK, especially those whose parents work in the fashion and textiles industry. With your support, children like Sebastian will have access to a warm winter duvet, a cosy new coat, or a hot cooked meal from a working oven. You can read Sebastian's touching story on our website [link to Sebastian's story.

A Grateful Thank You

To all who generously donated to our Winter Appeal, please know how much your support means to us. Your kindness will have a lasting impact on the lives of children in need, and we are immensely grateful for your commitment to our cause.
